Who wouldn’t want the appearance of bigger, more muscular arms without the hassle of going to the gym? I’m going to fill you in on a little style secret that’s simple enough for any guy to pull off that can make a big difference on how you look. The particular shirt I’m going to talk to you to you about today can instantly give you the illusion of fitter upper body. Whether you’ve been putting in the hard hours at the gym or not, I can promise you you’ll be getting compliments on your arms by simply adopting this style hack into your wardrobe.
So what’s this magical shirt I’m going on and on about ,you may be asking yourself? Its the three button henley! The three button henley works perfectly on its own, or under jackets, but today I’ll be telling you about wearing it solo & why its construction gives the appearance of a more muscular body.
The secret to this shirt is the three top buttons at the neck and the shorter cut sleeves. I personally wear only one button undone, but you can go down to two - depending how comfortable you are with low necklines. Similar to how a v-neck works, unbuttoning the henley creates that V shape illusion that every guy covets. Further creating the appearance of a bigger upper body, the henley’s sleeve is typically cut shorter than a regular shirt, showing more of your triceps. Its not about having big arms, its about not covering them up with a long sleeve. A shorter sleeve features your arms in a flattering way 100% of the time. I mean it makes sense right, when you hide something by covering it up, you don't really feature it and make it look smaller.
Ultimately the devil is in the details. There are always little minor things we all can do in order to maximise our appearance and make us look the best we possibly can. I hope you guys enjoyed todays style secret, let me know if you’ll be adding this easy fashion hack into your wardrobe!
